The victims were found Wednesday night near 49th Avenue between Pierson and Elm streets.

Police responded to the scene after neighbors reported hearing what sounded like either six to eight gunshots or fireworks.

According to Sgt. Tommy Thompson of the Phoenix Police Department, the victims are a man between 18 and 22 years old and a man between 28 and 32 years old.

Investigators have very little to go on at this point. In addition to not knowing the motive for the shooting, they're not even sure who owns the car, a 1975 Ford Torino in which the victims were discovered. Police have no suspect information at this time.

Anyone who may have witnessed this incident or who may have information concerning it, is encouraged to call the Phoenix Police Department Violent Crimes Bureau at 602-262-6141 or Silent Witness at 480-W-I-T-N-E-S-S or 480-T-E-S-T-I-G-O.
